* Creator/AlanMoore's ''ComicBook/{{Providence}}'' tackles this when Robert Black notes in his commonplace book that he doubts he has the literary talent to write the UsefulNotes/GreatAmericanNovel about the "hidden America". He states that he's probably too normal to be a great writer and that to properly deal with the occult one has to be a little crazy to start with. ** Ronald Underwood Pitman plays with this trope. He paints murderous ghouls and the Stella Sapiente, and [[spoiler: kills people for his art]]. But he acts perfectly sane.

* There are at least a couple of ''Series/TalesFromTheCrypt'' episodes centered around Mad Artists. One of them was about an artist who killed people and used their blood in his paintings and another featured a young female artist (whose work bordered on the grotesque) killing her sugar daddy husband and turning him into soap.

* Ena of ''ShikabaneHime'' was a mentally unstable portrait painter in life; in death, [[ViewerGenderConfusion he]] exists only to create incredible beauty. Pity he's utterly deranged about it.

* In ''Webcomic/HeIsAGoodBoy'' when Crange finds that all of his [[OrganTheft organs have been stolen]], he goes to a hospital and meets a GiantSpider who has been using organs and dessicated carcasses as a medium. Surprisingly, he's not the one that gutted Crange, and even points out that whoever did was an amateur.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' had [[AIIsACrapShoot funnybot]], who [[spoiler:was [[NukeEm about to kill everyone on the planet]] to reach the maximum amount of "awkward" and therefore create the ultimate joke.]] * In one round of ''OzzyAndDrix'', a beatnik guy was up to tricks. A mean cholesterol sublime, he dressed in black and [[RhymesOnADime spoke in rhyme]]. He zeroed in on Hector's heart so he could get an early start to make his great "disasterpiece," of which he'd name it "Heart Disease."

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E23InspirationManifestation Inspiration Manifestation]]'', practically every "improvement" Rarity does after a certain point is at least unappealing or potentially harmful to somepony, but she either doesn't notice or doesn't care.

* SteveDitko did a ''ComicBook/TheQuestion'' story about a charlatan modern artist who hated uplifting and high-quality historic artworks, who dressed up as one of his own ugly, sludgy-looking sculptures to become an art-vandalizing supervillain.

* Minor example was the one-shot villain and manga artist Chitaro Ariga from ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal''. (Not truly mad, and he was actually a decent artist. He was just a BrainwashedAndCrazy pawn of the real villain.)

* Opyros from ''{{Literature/Kane}}'' story "The Dark Muse" is a young man obsessed with the idea of writing a perfect poem on Gods of Darkness. To this end, he befriends shady characters (like Kane himself) and experiments with different mind-altering substances (once almost killing his lover Ceteol in the process). Finally he lays his hands on the titular Dark Muse, an artifact that can transfer the user - bodily - to the realm of dreams... and nightmares. This experience wrecks his mind but also finally allows him to write his poem [[spoiler: which turns out to be a BrownNote that kills most listeners during the first official reading and turns the rest stark raving mad.]]

* One of the "[[EldritchAbomination Witches]]" in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' is an artist who instructs her [[PabloPicasso Picassoesque]] familiars to capture people who fall into her EldritchLocation barrier, [[BodyHorror tear them to shreds, and place their remains inside their bodies]]. Her familiars' duty is "to be works of art". Since familiars in this show reflect the contents of Witches' hearts and desires, this example counts.
